Basketball Hoop Purchasing Guide: Basketball Backboard Sizes

Posted by Administrator on 10/16/2012 to Store News & Events
To start off this section, we should note that a regulation backboard is 72 inches wide and 42 inches high. Most basketball systems, however, do not have this large of a backboard. There are a large number of mini basketball hoops available, which we will not consider. We will consider basketball hoops made by Lifetime Products, Spalding, Huffy, Goalsetter, and Goalrilla product offerings that have systems that can have the rim reach 10 feet. In this group of available basketball systems, backboards widths can be as small as 44 inches wide and as big as a regulation-sized backboard. Here are some more details for each size group.

End of the Line for Lifetime Basketball Hoop 90013

Lifetime Table Size Update

Posted by Administrator on 9/19/2011 to Lifetime Tables & Chairs

The blow-molding process is not the same as constructing something from wood or metal. Blow molding has a bit of size variance from the time of production to the time of packaging. This variance can be upwards of 3% in some cases. Lifetime had previously indicated the 2960 and 2968 Lifetime round tables as 48-inch diameter round tables. After careful remeasuring, they have now updated this size to 46-inches. They are still the same model as always, with the same material of a construction, same weight capacity, and same features. Lifetime has simply determined that their mold for the table, after the blow-molding process has settled, produces a table top closer to 46-inches instead of 48.

Getting the best Lifetime folding chair and folding table prices:

Posted by Administrator on 10/8/2010 to Lifetime Tables & Chairs
For almost all models of Lifetime table and Lifetime chair, Lifetime offers different packaging configurations. For tables, those typically consist of single pack, a 4 pack, and a pallet load of the particular models. Pallet load quantities vary per model, but typically range in size from 10 pieces per pallet to 22 pieces per pallet. Due to the nature of online shopping and shipping costs for small packages, Lifetime Products does not offer a single pack of their chair models.

When shipping to Canada, a number of things must be considered when ordering.

National Public Seating BT-Series Round Folding Tables and Seminar Tables Update

Posted by Administrator on 10/1/2010 to Store News & Events
What we heard from customers is that the colors of the National Public Seating (NPS) round tables did not match the white granite from Lifetime Products. Because we only heard about this issue on the rarest of occasions, we figured that the coloration differences were because of different building specifications from either manufacturer. We finally heard one last complaint about this issue and contacted NPS about the problem. The customer that had received the tables said the packaging actually said Gray on the box.
